Sand Drags Race & Results - June 2, 2013

We’re experiencing a typically gorgeous trade wind day today here at Kalaeloa Raceway Park. It’s definitely a good day for some sunscreen and probably a good day to have an ample supply of refreshments. Thankfully the vendors are always prepared with an assortment of food and drinks to choose from, but if spectators prefer they are allowed to bring in coolers (sans alcoholic beverages which are not permitted) which is always a plus.

As I make my way from my van to the tower I hear them announce Tom Brown against Paul Giovannetti, the cars start, line up then off in a roar. Announcer for the day, Mike Kitchens, announces in excitement the reaction time of Paul’s unlimited rail #556 as a .006/sec (which is very nearly perfect) and it was evidenced by a glimpse of the orange car leading the black car as they flashed between two storage containers located between me and the track. I pause for a moment, knowing the two cars might pass me in a moment as they make their ways down the return road and back to the staging lane. I had intended to give Paul a “thumbs up” for his reaction time, but his car was intercepted by his pit crew and stopped several hundred feet short of me. Tom was rumbling along the asphalt return road so I we gave each other a nod of acknowledgement and I basked for a moment in the perfume of the exhaust fumes trailing behind him.

HulaCross Race & Results - May 25th, 2013

The stock car practices are complete so during a short break we run a series that has been running at the track since its first opening. This is a motorsport support series that was born out of a need for racing without a real racetrack. It was first started in the form of rally cross that is common across the US and made up of a mixture of sedans and trucks. The series has dwindled since the opening of the circle track in part due to the conflict faced by the drivers as to where they should invest both energy and dollars.

Hulacross Heat Races

Nowadays KRP utilizes the dirt oval pit entrance/exit area and the infield to create a sort of arena style off road racing. The practice follows all the stock car classes and in order for the drivers to be sure they know the track layout the segment starts with a quick “lead follow” before they let the vehicles loose. It gets dusty quickly and at one point I can’t see across the track. There’s the #83 of the Maui Off Road crew who took off from the pack early and the #1 black Subaru of Mike Ward followed by the blue Dodge truck #1 (It’s actually a number 1 followed by a bunch of letters which I can’t read), and a few other trailing for about 10 laps.

Stock Car Race & Results - May 25th, 2013

Tonight is the inaugural night race at Kalaeloa Raceway Park’s dirt oval.  This is the third race day at the oval track.  The classes have been gradually growing each event and this one promises to be another KRP success just like the previous night events held at the facility.  I arrive (at the Parcel 24 Barber’s Point facility to document the event for the Kalaeloaracewaypark.com website) never too soon and I’m fairly surprised at the lengthy line at the gate.  I take and post a quick Facebook photo of the encouraging indication made by the triple lane entrance that’s backed out nearly to Coral Sea Road.  

Once parked I make my way (actually I hobble on crutches as my broken foot is still a bit of a problem), across the gravel parking lot, around the bunker and up the stairs of the control tower.  The timing staff graciously offer me a stool and electrical outlet which  I can’t do without in order for me to record all the action.  I sit down and quickly realize there are a lot of racecars coming out to pack the track.  As I start writing down all the descriptions during practice, otherwise known as “hot-laps”, I see new car after new car, after new car.  This id the first night race for the stock car track at the new facility and the attendance and participation just doubled instantly.
